Of course, you don’t want to stop there. Given its ease of use, plus the effects of vibration, temperature changes, and time on pressurized threaded connections, it’s altogether likely that you’ll find at least a few uses for it. In fact, incorporating the Ultrasonic Leak Detector into a periodic maintenance inspection will allow you to find new leaks before they can do too much damage to your bottom line. Remember, they won’t fix themselves. There was once a company that saved a million cubic feet of compressed air per year (spoiler alert: it was us.)
I just had the pleasure of talking to an Ultrasonic Leak Detector user whose primary concern wasn’t related to saving compressed air. The facility’s fire suppression system was pressurized with compressed air, and was losing pressure very slowly. This was activating the recharging cycle on a regular basis, and, due to the critical nature of the system, it reached a point where it was recharging too often to be acceptable.
In the past, they either had to secure the system and perform a hydrostatic test – which required them to shut down production as well, because they processed flammable materials and couldn’t continue operation without the fire suppression system on line – or conduct “soap bubble” tests, which are time consuming and messy.
The Ultrasonic Leak Detector enabled them to quickly and easily find the leaks, which were repaired during normal production off-time. If you want to find a compressed air leak – for whatever reason – give us a call…we’ve got what you’re looking for.
